Help! What is the button to the right of the hazard button?!


Asked by Oct 27, 2013 at 08:56 PM about the 2014 Ford Escape Titanium

Question type: General

This button has what looks like a picture of a padlock on it.  It does not push in, it just lights up randomly.  Not knowing what that "button" is for is driving me crazy! I checked out page 278 in manual as someone suggested. If it is the parental lock, what is it? And there is no way to change it as it doesn't push at all. And there is nowhere to use the 1234 code. Help? Anybody?

A padlock symbol is for some kind of security system. Does it light up at all? HTH. -Jim


It should indicate that the passenger air bag is disabled. It disables if you place items on your passenger seat (or dog in my case) that is greater than (dont quote me) 25 lbs but less than 75 lbs. it's a child safety device.

Thank you, samuelrocky! It was driving me nuts!


It indicates that the doors are locked. I found this someplace in the owners manual. Lock you doors--light on. Unlock doors--light off.

I am curious which answer is correct ? The air bag indicator or the doors being locked
